“Awesome Sunrises & Sunsets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

No wonder the king was so impressed and called it the Balcon de Europa really great at any time of the day but the sunrises and sunsets really are worth the walk. The restaurants and cafes that surround this also deserve a mention as hey are great places to spend an hour watching the world go by.

You can see up and down the coast and share the view with the Bronze statue of King Alphonso of Spain who gave it the name

Excellent for a night walk..... ice-cream included.
Great for a night shot at the plaza. Don't forget to try the icecream, it's mandatory :-)

“People watching at it's best.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Sit back and relax in the sun and as well as the stunning views, watch the world go by. Can't think of anywhere else in the world and that's saying something.
